Samsung vs Apple .. Android vs iOS.. both are great, depend for who and what are they will use for.. so no need to argue.. just enjoy the tech on both of them ..and if you cand afford to have two of them, then buy them.. like i used to ..
Why is this article comparing winner, when the galaxy s7 is lastest phone. Anyone can beat a phone that already released within 6 months to have better technology.
Zak, 29 Mar 2016Previous comparison was between the Samsung St and the iPhone 6S that was launched in Septembe... moreUuuummmmm.....and then the new iPhone will be that messy months newer so that won't be fair according to you.
And watch the iphone 7 still only win a couple areas.
Besides thats not the whole point of the comparison. Or a comparison in general. It does not require that the two devices have to the same price, released the same time, or anything like. Just comparing. And this is the only way to do that with two device lines that release in intervals like this.
If you care like that then compare the Note 6 to the iphone 7. You just sound more like you are upset the iphone lost so badly.
Previous comparison was between the Samsung St and the iPhone 6S that was launched in September 2015. We should for the next iPhone to have a real comparison.
What scares me about the Android is the security and stories about hacking that come out frequently but no such news about the iOS.
For the business minded user that social media, watching videos or playing music is not a priority, the iPhone is a better option.

Awaited, 28 Mar 2016You Sir, just nailed it. What's bad with Android other than lag is, you need to press more but... moreYou're actually 100% wrong. Generally, you need to have more presses/taps with iOS to do a specific task than Android. iOS has closed the gap somewhat, but mostly through copying what Android does.
Quick correction to the article - your didn't need the S-Pen to have the "peek and poke" functionality, hovering your finger over the screen on the S4 gave you that.
I respect both of the devices regardless of me having a 64 gb 6s..
Both of them are titans of their respective company.
Depends upon you that whom do you give the opportunity to be the one for you.

What's bad with Android other than lag is, you need to press more buttons to do same thing what you do with Apple. Even if you open a new photo editor you get choice what will you use to open n photos to edit WITH, will you make it standard program or not? Stupid things steal time, Apple has lenses in same app. Not silly options which package installer you will use to download app.. Wtf
AnonD-488766, 28 Mar 2016Apple: way overpriced for even the 16gb model but a $200 price bump for only 112gb which hasn'... moreSamsung uses and develops the most advanced tech in phones every year. Along with the most featured, functional, and secure software.
All worth more time and money into research and development as well as advertising.
They have legitimate and rightful reasons their devices cost more
cost is matter for me , i will just go with new iphone se for $499 . currently still using galaxy s3 with no problem , i love it too . both apple and android
Anonymous, 23 Mar 2016i have iphone 6s plus and i dont have any issues what you mention here.......No, but the lag from the 3X scaling and then downscaling to 2.6X (1080p) makes the plus variant blow.
Apple: way overpriced for even the 16gb model but a $200 price bump for only 112gb which hasn't reduced in the 3-4 years its been offered is criminal.
Samsung: always the best specs apart from the camera for about 2 weeks until LG, HTC, HUAWII, SONY, MOTOROLA... Etc, etc. Match them 1 way or another, yet the Galaxy & Note models remain $150 minimum above competitors price.
Both r always overpriced only for the sake of name & relevance. I cant wait for the Chinese brands to crush them in the next 5 years, they both deserve it.
I got the S7 Edge a few days ago and also have an iPhone 6+ to compare it to.
For low light shots, the S7 is noticeably better than both the iPhone and the Note 5.
For daylight shots, especially in high contrast environments with sun and shadows, the iPhone is noticeably better balanced.
The S7 Edge overprocesses, the colors are oversaturated and yellowish and the dynamic range is as bad as it was on the S5. A big step backwards from the Note 5, which I think is the best balanced Samsung currently.
I'll get rid of the S7 Edge as soon as I find something that matches its low light capabilities, without screwing up the dynamic range. Eagerly waiting for either the Huawei P9 or the iPhone 7.
Hm wonder what the S7/S7edge owners are saying about their new phones.
Here some feedbacks:
1.Bluetooth connectivity issues, also bluetooth low energy is always on eating your battery.
2.The adoptable storage is not available for S7 (that means you cant install apps on your sd cards unless you root your s7)
3.Overheating (Mongoose) there is some serious SoC throttling.(check 3DMark SlingShot tests)
4.Screen is oversensitive you can't pick the phone without launching the camera.Edge screen is not rejecting you fingers when you are just holding it.
5.Last but not least the lag is still there no matter how fast the phone is on the benchmarks.
